I recommend this book. Nov 08, Wendy rated it really liked it. I usually always enjoy the Michael Bennett series. I love reading about his huge family.
This book just didn't hit home like the others. It didn't seem to end right, it was abrupt and kind of dull. View all 5 comments. Fast and enjoyable read. Nov 14, Laura Rash rated it liked it. This started out with a rocket start but slowly dribbled down to a dull, flat ending.
Jan 10, Emily rated it liked it. A decent story, but I'm just not a big fan of the Bookshots format, I guess. There's just not a lot of depth to them because of the short length, and they're pretty predictable. Still, it held my interest, though with many interruptions as I haven't had time to read much in the past few days.

I probably would have enjoyed it more if I'd actually sat and read it in one "shot". Immature narration and this will be my last Michael Bennett, if not James Patterson.

The planning for the co-written stories intrigues me. I remember reading somewhere that Patterson comes up with the ideas and the co-author writes the stories but does a new author coming in to a series know the characters well? Patterson puts a bit of a spin on the overdone terrorist storyline, making for an unpredictable read and also quite a thought-provoking one too that makes you really think about how far you would go to protect your family. If in the same situation as this supposedly evil terrorist as assumed at the start of the novel , how would you react? The whole storyline felt fresh and exciting and not simply a rehash of stories that have been done over and over again.
Because it was a novella I enjoyed how most of the focus was on the story. I have never really taken to Mary Catherine and the scenes between her and Bennett in the main series have always been nauseating.

This time around Bennett is accompanied by a mysterious Russian who certainly brightened the book up and added tension to the story. Overall this was a real entertaining read and I love the Bookshots format because I did finish Manhunt feeling quite exhilarated after a fast-paced read full of action and plenty of drama. Feb 10, Mike Kennedy rated it liked it Shelves: james-patterson. Novella involving Michael Bennett.
As they are watching a van bursts into the parade and the terrorist jumps out then exploding a bomb in the back. Bennett spends the rest of the novella chasing down the suspect on an FBI Taskforce along with an observer from the Russian Embassy. Jan 28, Donna Lewis rated it liked it.

Right in front of Detective Micheal Bennett and his family? Let the book began. It feels it was written quickly and the author was brain fried trying to complete it. I have completed the series! James Patterson please come out with a new Michael Bennett book soon! Love his books, and the audible version was awesome. Dec 15, Carol rated it really liked it.
This is a very enjoyable read. Patterson is using his Bookshot format, and this one follows that format. Not my favorite but it is good if you want a quick read.
